Many of us have an unhealthy relationship with money and may even experience feelings of guilt in the pursuit of making a healthy living. In order to take control of your finances you must take control of your relationship with them.
So you're looking to break into wholesale, but not sure where to begin. Sound familiar?
Fret not, I've got you're back!
Let’s start with some of the fundamental logistics you’ll want to think through:
I lost $2 MILLION Dollars
If you have been an entrepreneur for longer than a nanosecond, you know that this journey provides more than its fair share of life lessons. Over the years, I've grown a pretty thick skin of resilience, but nothing could have prepared me for the huge loss we experienced soon after launching our company, Peyton Bre.

"All managers and executive leaders need to head outside for our meeting today at 1pm. Bring a cup full of water to represent your work load."
It was somewhat vague, but that's the Gary we've all come to know and love. We marched outside with our glasses full of water, bantering back and forth trying to guess what this demonstration was all about.
"You each are holding a cup filled with water to represent your daily work load. I want you to drink how much of it you get done on...
Goals = Growth. Without clearly defined goals new business owners often lack clear direction, get discouraged and quit. It isn't their lack of ability but rather their lack of direction that causes failure to succeed.

As mompreneurs it's easy to worry about our kids and how they interpret what we do and how and when we do it. But how often do we open the dialogue and ask?
I recently did just that! The filters are off as 4 of my 6 children open up about what it's like to have parents who are entrepreneurs.. and some of it is quite enlightening!
